Hi
We have a family holiday home in County Clare and of course, due to Covid, we haven't been able to visit for 2 years.
I'm so excited to be heading home next week, but as this my first trip since Brexit, I have a few questions....
In the past, when coming over, we would stock up on wine and beer and a few food / household essentials.  Now we are no longer (pfffft!) part of the EU, have the rules changed as to what we can bring in (and I guess out) of Ireland?
Many thanks

Hi Paul,

It's great to hear you have a trip planned to the island. Since the UK left the EU, goods allowances changed both to and from Ireland. As of now, 16 liters of beer, 4 of wine (not sparkling), and 1 of spirits are allowed each way. You can find the full list of goods and allowances to enter the UK in the UK allowance page and the list of allowances for Ireland on the Customs regulations page.

I hope this is helpful and that your trip back to Ireland after these two years is a wonderful one.

Have a great day,

David
